I had to present this to those who have entered and those who wish to enter the Sapphic Stanza contest as an example of "Where it's At"----precisely what I am looking for---and the jux--SERIOUSLY!---is the climax on the foreplay, the ice cream licked from the bitten tip of a sugar cone before finishing the curled sugared waffle--the rolled cinnamon pieces that Mom would make from pie crust trimmings--the pan left to "clean" after the fudge has been made. See how the writer used no gerunds and no adverbs! and the jux is worthy of any Haiku or Senryu----the bar is set very high here---get 'er done!
Also, I have some excellent advice for you contest goers---do not simply edit your entry and hope it is noticed in any contest because it may never be noticed by a judge that has read and disgarded it. Instead, rewrite your entry as you would like it and then delete your original entry and then enter your revision or new entry. and it will be appreciated and read as it should be.
Breaths of darkness percolate through the ether,
Hades’ fingers crawl into every corner,
Evil’s creep is silent and surreptitious,
Meanwhile - we party!
